A Firesign Chat


||||||||| Catherwood re-enters the Waiting Room and explains "This is the main discussion room which is logged each night."
||||||||| Catherwood announces, "The time is 4:33 AM - I now declare Thursday's chat log for July 28, 2005 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Firebroiled enters at 7:41 AM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and dashes off to the Haberdashery Barn.
Firebroiled: Happy B-day, Rocky!!
||||||||| At 7:42 AM, Firebroiled dashes out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
||||||||| Outside, the 12:26 PM bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving Tweeny coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Tweeny: 2 things: You really want the Grateful Dead, and you really want the 3rd Army of Patton to protect you. Where shall we stop buying time?
Tweeny: Until last time, again...
||||||||| Around 12:28 PM, Tweeny walks off into the sunset...
||||||||| Catherwood enters with ah,clem close behind, mumbles something about disrupting his 7:49 PM tree-stunting plans, and dashes off to the vestibule.
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"A Few Minutes with Firesign Theatre", live from studio A'
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 8 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| Catherwood escorts Klok-de-Humidified inside, makes a note of the time (8:03 PM), then fades off into the distance going on about the waiting room or the sitting room or something.
||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and Bambi disembarks at 8:03 PM.

||||||||| Catherwood enters with cease close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 8:15 PM tree-stunting plans, and dashes off to the Aviary.

Elayne: The heat wave in NYC finally broke today, it was lovely.

Gen. Tweenus Goatheart: Was he wearing heels? He calls himself a male lesbian.
Gen. Tweenus Goatheart: Hey Mud...

Bambi: gonna have to talk to my webhost...our site is not available right now
Gen. Tweenus Goatheart: Exactly, E. Damned funny stuff.
Bambi: hi Mudhead
Elayne: I love when he goes into his multi-lingual riffs. I know just enough of a smattering of other languages to "get it."
Mudhead: What, an internet failure, I've never heard of that!
boney: Merlyn, you can't talk about the "things with Air America and Firesign Theatre" because... Why? Because they're awful and embarrassing?

Elayne: Brian, can you at least confirm whether Marc Maron is a Firesign fan?

cease: they layed Organ Leroy in the background to set it up
Elayne: Oh, that's not on Majority Report, that's produced separately.
cease: uh, played
Elayne: They do Planet Check stuff on the ad breaks for most of the Air America shows.
Mudhead: i liked layed better
Elayne: Don't know who produces those PSAs, but I don't think it's an Air America person.
Gen. Tweenus Goatheart: Ja, the layder the bitter...
Mudhead: try some layder hoser
cease: the maj report has fewer and fewer guests and more and more calls which i do not care for at all
Dexter Fong: Clem is deconstructing Tv or Not TV
Mudhead: was that a question?
Gen. Tweenus Goatheart: Mizzzz information....
boney: I loved the PSAs that Frank Zappa did for KPFK-FM back in the late 1970s... "Don't take speed--it will make you just like your parents."
Mudhead: I hate my parents
Dexter Fong: wow! Dead or 94

Elayne: I still miss my Gypsy, he was my first kitty.
Dexter Fong: E: Seems to be a newcomer..somewhat diffident
Mudhead: awww
Elayne: Cat, Datsa's still hanging in, strong and fierce as ever, and Amy's her usual terribly-cute self.

Bambi: can you guys get to http://www.jim-fran.com or http://www.cniradio.com?

Bambi: hey pP
Mudhead: Professer, whats it look like in the astrolabe?
professorPoop: give us a round of vin de jour llan
Elayne: That's why it was so easy for me to get into when I finally saw it, it reminded me of Dwarf.
Elayne: "Riding the backs of giraffes for laughs is alright for awhile..."
Bambi: so would professor be a promotion or a demotion from principal?
Elayne: And of course the "war song" scene still gets to me, I still can't watch that all the way through.

Dave: I have yet to see citizen cane, then again I'd miss a lot because I've heard that the camera work was amazing for its time
Bunnyboy: Klok: Rent the latest 4 disc edition of GWTW. You can actually make out SKIN TONES. Veins, blemishes and everything.
professorPoop: I have not seen anybody who talks like ken
Dave: wow bun that's amazing for the time and all
Dexter Fong: Klok: Don't think that GWTW had that many directors..but do know that Director of "Rainboe" director was pulled off that flic and put on GWTW for slugging Judy Garland
Klok-de-Humidified: Dave - watch RKO 281 or whatever it was. Great backstory on Kane
whump: Kane rocks.
cease: you thought citizen kane was overproduced?
Dave: ah just spelt kane, now I know how to spell it
Dexter Fong: Klok: JUs how would Dave "WATCH" RKO 281
Dave: what was that? rko what? never heard of it
Bunnyboy: GWTW had at least 3 directors. And over a half dozen writers. Similiar situation on both fronts with OZ.
Klok-de-Humidified: whump -- dunno. the more i watch it, the more i think it was just showoff. Certainly RKO... showed some feet of clay
professorPoop: buddy ibsen was the original tin man, they almost killed him with the paint, he was replaced
cease: its funny, firesign riffed on citizen kane and wizard of oz on boom dot bust and it didnt save the album
whump: Documentary about making of Kane. I haven't watched it.
professorPoop: a cool special on making of OZ
Klok-de-Humidified: Dave - it was a made-for-Showtime or -for-HBO movie. Very good. About Welles and the making of Citizen Kane
Dexter Fong: pP: Buddy Bolden was the greatest New Orleans trumpet player
Klok-de-Humidified: whump - no, it's fictional
Bunnyboy: And they burned Margaret Hamilton. And badgered her back to work.
Dave: hmmm will have to track it down
Klok-de-Humidified: cat - most alive today don't even know what Citizen Kane is, nor care
Dave: yep dex, but we haven't a clue what he sounded like
Dexter Fong: Bunny: I heard she weaseled outta that deal
professorPoop: not al hurt or louis armstrong or.....
whump checks IMDB, eep. I don't know where I got that datum.
professorPoop: yes bunny
Dave: I honestly am one who does not, but would like to know, only because Wells is one of my fave radio actors
Klok-de-Humidified: they have no idea who William Randolph Hearst is, either. they barely know who frigging Murdoch is. newspapers don't exist for most of the current population, to a first approximation
Klok-de-Humidified: yeah, he did good radio, dave
cease: i just saw hearst in flick the cat's meow
Bunnyboy: The new OZ set will also include a 1990 doc (*NOT* DocTech!), a 2001 TCM doc, a doc on L. Frank Baum, and 5 pre-1939 OZ films, including the one with "Babe" Hardy as the Tin Man.
cease: he tries to kill chaplink kills someone else instead. apparently true story, according to orson welles

Dexter Fong: Thanks Cat..btw..visited your blog lately
Bambi: night Dex
Dave: yes he did great stuff on radio, have most if not all of it, earthstation1 had a dvd of his stuff if anyone's interested, lots of great shows
Klok-de-Humidified: It would be wasted, Dave, but Altman got so annoyed at everyone harping about Welles tracking shots (in The Magnificent Ambersons)...
Dexter Fong: Thanks pP: Rita's neata then Cheetah
Klok-de-Humidified: ...that he made an 11 minute tracking shot opening to his movie The Player
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in and snorts derisively "Presenting 'Pimp Potent', just granted probation at 10:39 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Pimp Potent:
Pimp Potent: If you want to know why, view the cumulative wind distribution of this storm at... http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/refresh/graphics_at1+shtml/024540.shtml?swath
Pimp Potent:
Pimp Potent: Is that kinky or what!!? *¿* ?!! :)
Dave: lol that's funny I'd do the same thing if I were him
||||||||| Around 10:39 PM, Pimp Potent walks off into the sunset...
Klok-de-Humidified: and then to beat one inside joke after another into the ground, staged a crucial crime in the movie around a showing of The Bicycle Thief
professorPoop: auchdeliebah
Bunnyboy gushes
Bunnyboy: Don't forget the fabulous tracking shot at the beginning of TOUCH OF EVIL.
professorPoop: nice of pimp to stop by

Bunnyboy: Klok: Both editions have the same shot, I believe. With credits over the top.

Klok-de-Humidified: last night you had the strangest dream?
Klok-de-Humidified: over the top is a good description of A Touch of Evil...
cease: the opening shot was the best part of the flick. it was all downhill from there
professorPoop: what did you eat before you slept? or ingest? inject? snort? sniff? inhale? insert?
Bunnyboy: Yeah, I knew the setups, but had to improvise my lines. And I was late for my first entrance.
Bunnyboy: It must have been the taco. Or the enchilada.
Bunnyboy: My bet's on the ground beef.
professorPoop: ahhhh
Klok-de-Humidified: well, gee, Bunny, revel in it. Most of us just get the low-budget dream about not having studied for the exam...
whump: When he awoke, there was a script clutched in his hands that wasn't there before.
cease: sounds like one of marc maron's dreams
professorPoop: I had a dream I ate a giant marshmellow and when I woke up my pillow was gone
Bunnyboy: "Those aren't pillows!"
Dave: lol pp
Bunnyboy plays Organ Sting!
cease: my servants were in those pillows
Bunnyboy: "I didn't have a Baby Ruth in my desk!"

cease: good for you, whump
professorPoop: passing time again bunny?
cease: my wife and i were lucky enough to celebrate an earlier birthday with proc and his wife in 97.

Merlyn: bye now

||||||||| At 10:54 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Merlyn!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
professorPoop: Night M, and thanks again
Bunnyboy: TIREBITER FOLLIES. Yes, yes. Shame I didn't make it to AUDIOLA...

Klok-de-Humidified: poop - "Circle" is one of the semial bluegrass/country celebrations. There's Circle and Circle II, both good
Bunnyboy: When DEADWOOD season 2 comes out on video, y'all will have a chance to see an excruciating dramatization of passing a kidney stone, in the late 19th century. Not for the faint of heart or stomach.
whump: wince
Dave: yes cirlcle and circle ii are great records, I like a lot of different types of music, have lots of folk and country
professorPoop: it rattled around and fell out of my brain when somebody said circle, I was drinking heavily and smoking a lot of pot in those days. I do not try to remember details as that is usually fruitless
Bunnyboy: cease: Yes, TIREBITER FOLLIES. That's where Proctor made the announcement that GMIOGMD was in process. First FST album in 14+ years.
Bambi: well, I am falling asleep at the keyboard
Bambi: so have a great night!

Klok-de-Humidified: nite to you and Clem both
